INTRODUCTION 

Congratulations! Your new Thoroughbred Horse Race Analyzer 
is revolutionary! With it you have an analytical edge at the 
racetrack— computerized handicapping! The computer asks 
you questions. You punch in the answers. The hard part is done 
for you! 

The Horse Race Analyzer is a fine piece of precision equipment. 
Treat it as such. Take good care of it. Use it according to these 
instructions and it can help you have many enjoyable, exciting 
days at the track. 

How does it work? 

Like anything else that's rewarding, the Horse Race Analyzer 
takes some work. Actually, this special-purpose machine does 
most of the work for you. 



With a little concentration at the beginning, you'll soon get the 
hang of it. The Horse Race Analyzer asks you some basic ques- 
tions about each horse in the race— for example, how has the 
horse done so far this year? How did it do last year? How well did 
the horse run during its last race, and the race before that?— and 
soon. 

If you're a horse race novice, don't panic! Nobody expects you to 
know all that. You simply find the answers in the Daily Racing 
Form, a newspaper that has all the information you need. As you 
find the up-to-date numbers in the Daily Racing Form, just punch 
them into the computer. Don't worry about what number comes 
next. The computer will automatically ask you for what it needs— 
in the right order! 

This programming process gets easier with every race you handi- 
cap. Remember, though, don't take shortcuts! It's very important 



to use the entire sequence for each horse. And be sure to check 
your answers on the display as you feed them into the computer. 
Missing some vital information or putting in the wrong number 
could seriously impair the computer's very special analyzing and 
rating abilities. 

You and the Computer are a Team 

A lot of research has gone into the development of the Horse Race 
Analyzer™ and its handicapping program. It required extensive 
experience to decide which factors are the most important in 
handicapping. As you already know, the Horse Race Analyzer 
computes many of these factors. But there are also decisions you 
should make after the computer has given its opinion. You are just 
as important as the computer— you two are a team. The computer 
does a lot of the tiresome drudgery involved in handicapping cal- 



culations, but you have to make the final decisions. Now that you 
have a technical "expert" as your aide, handicapping horses is a 
lot more fun! 

Chances are that you haven't had a lot of experience with com- 
puters. Even though the Horse Race Analyzer is a microcomputer, 
don't let that bother you! It probably seems more complicated than 
it really is, and you really will find it easy to use after you work with 
it a while. It's been programmed to remind you of every piece of 
information it needs, so you don't have to memorize anything. 



WHAT THE HORSE RACE ANALYZER WONT DO 

We sincerely believe that if you follow these instructions you'll 
have more successful handicapping days than unsuccessful 
ones. Still, some factors in any horse race, are unpredictable. 
Even the best horse can lose on any given day. Spectacular Bid, 
picked by almost everyone to win the 1979 Belmont Stakes, lost 
that day and so did not win the Triple Crown that year! Bad racing 
luck or a jockey's misjudgment can cost the best horse any race. 
Always remember there are some unknowns that just can't 
be predicted! 

While NO method, system, theory or computer can guarantee you 
a first, second or third-place finisher every time, the Horse Race 
Analyzer will give you a chance to select some of the more promis- 



ing horses and become more involved in the fascinating game of 
race handicapping. 

Let's stay on the right track! 

THE HORSE RACE ANALYZER IS DESIGNED FOR 
THOROUGHBRED RACING. IT MUST BE USED FOR THAT 
SINGLE PURPOSE TO GIVE YOU THE PRECISION YOU 
WANT. ITS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR HANDICAPPING 
OF RACES OF 3 YEARS-OR-OLDER EXPERIENCED HORSES 
ON FAST DIRT OR FIRM TURF TRACKS, RUNNING DISTANCES 
OF 6 FURLONGS OR MORE (1 furlong = Va mile). 
IT CANNOT BE USED FOR "MAIDEN RACES!' 

The Horse Race Analyzer is NOT designed for harness races 
(trotters or pacers), quarter horse or dog races. 



Just remember, computers work on information. So if you want 
to get the best results from this computer, use it only on races 
between horses that have had enough experience to analyze! 
USE THE HORSE RACE ANALYZER FOR RACES WHERE AT 
LEAST 90% OF THE 3-YEAR-OLD (OR OLDER) HORSES HAVE 
AT LEAST 5 RACES SHOWN IN THEIR PAST PERFORMANCE 
STATISTICS. When you see a race like the one on the next page, 
just pass it by and concentrate on races that show more perform- 
ance histories.

USING THE DAILY RACING FORM 

The Daily Racing Form is where you'll find all the information you'll 
need. This paper lists Past Performance statistics for all the horses 
running in every race at major tracks in the United States, and 
contains all the numbers you will need to input into the computer. 

By the time you've handicapped just a few races you'll locate 
these numbers in the Daily Racing Form and feed them into the 
computer quite fast. And don't worry— this computer is made to 
do most of the work for you! 

Remember the computer display will ask you the information in 
correct order. You need not remember the sequence. Merely famil- 
iarize yourself with the location of the information required in the 
Daily Racing Form. 




USING THE ANALYZER STEP-BY-STEP 
1. PURSE 

• Turn the Horse Race Analyzer on. By sliding the switch upward 
(the display will read PURSE.) 

Note: The PURSE figure is used only once for each race. 

• Using the number keys to enter the amount of the PURSE. 
(Example if the PURSE was $9000 you would press @] KB SB SB 
followed by PURSE) The PURSE figure can be located in the fol- 
lowing section of the Daily Racing Form. 



7th Bay Meadows 




6 FURLONGS. (108) CLAIMING. Purse $9,000. Fill 
3-year-olds, 118 lbs.; older, 122 lbs. Non-winner 
race since then, 6 lbs. Claiming price $20,000; for 
starter and claiming races for $15,000 or less not 



Note: If you make a mistake when you punch in PURSE 
turn the computer off and then|on again to clear it. 

Be especially careful when you enter 
PURSE, because the number you key in will apply to all the 
horses in the race, and have a major effect on thef inal ratings. 

After you've entered PURSE, if you make a mistake with any 
other number you can erase it (before you press its Entry Key) 
with cTE] . If a wrong number is actually entered, you can erase 
all the information for one horse by pressing |c/h| . Then the 
computer will start you again by asking for POST POSITION. 

Note: For the first time, this model (#9091) of the Horse Race Analyzer permits you to program racp- 
with7-digit purses. Please note, however that you will ngtseethe actual last(7th)digitappear" r ::.cuisplay 
screen when you have entered it. Instead, your indication that all 7 digits have been entered by you will 
be the prompt word PURSE blinking on and off rapidl y imm ediately upon your entering all 7 digits. Should 
PURSE blink when you do not want 7 digits, press [C/E I and re-enter the correct data. -| ^ 



2. DISTANCE OF RACE 

The second step in the sequence is DISTANCE. When you see 
this message, find the number in the Daily Racing Form. 

If this is a Sprint Race (less than a mile, i.e., less than 8 furlongs), 
press m and then Idisti . 

If this is a Route Race (a mile or more, i.e., 8 furlongs or more), 
press Eland then Em. 



7th Bay Meadows 




6 FURLONGS. (1.08) CLAIMING. Purse $9,000. Fi 
3-year-olds, 118 lbs.; older, 122 lbs. Non-winnei 
race since then, 6 lbs. Claiming price $20,000; fo 
starter and claiming races for $15,000 or less no 



3. POST POSITION 

The third step is POST POSITION. This refers to the position of 
each horse at the starting gate. The order of horses' names in the 
Daily Racing Form or in the track program is generally the same 
as the Post Positions they will actually run from at the start of the 
race. However, some horses might drop out (be "scratched") and 
others might be added from the "also eligible" list, which might 
change the Post Position numbers. Enter the proper number and 
then press EPQSNi.

4. DAYS AWAY 

Now the computer asks you for DAYS AWAY. 

• Count the number of days between the race you're handicap- 
ping and the last date the horse ran— the top date of the Past 
Performance lines. 

• Then punch in that number and press DAYS to enter it. If you 
were handicapping CONQUISTADOR SIX for a race to be 
run on September 13, 1992, you'd enter® for DAYS AWAY.

5. RACES SINCE LAST LAYOFF 

The fifth step is RACES SINCE LAYOFF. A "layoff" is a period of 
30 days or more between races. Look down the column of race 
dates and if you find a 30-day gap between any of them, enter the 
number of races this horse has run since that layoff. If the last 
race was more than 30 days ago, press [o] . If you don't find any 
layoff period, press \E . Then press [FTsH . If CONQUISTADOR SIX 
(below) were running on Se ptember 13, 1992, the R aces Since 
Layoff figure would be [3J

6. TWO-YEAR PERFORMANCE RECORD 

The computer asks you for the number of races this horse has run 
in the current (calendar) year. Punch in that number and enter it 

with Each. 

Next, the computer needs to know the number of times the horse 
finished first, second, and third, and its total winnings during the 
current y ear. Find each of these num bers and k ey them in. Enter 
them with iwflsrs] [places ishowsi and l earnings . 
Complete this step by answering the computer's questions about 
the horse's track record for last year. Use the same set of 
Entry Keys with these prior year numbers. NOTE: IF THERE 
WERE NO PRIOR YEAR EARNINGS, ENTER El.

Note: For the first time, this model (#9091) of the Horse Race Analyzer permits 

you to program any horses which attain 7-digit Earnings. Please note, however, 

that you will not see the actual last (7th) digit appear on the display screen when 

you have entered it. 

Instead, your indication that all 7 digits have been entered by you will be the 

prompt word EARNINGS blinking on and off rapidly immediately upon your 

entering all 7 digits. 

Should EARNINGS blink when you do not want 7 digits, press lC/El and re-enter 

the correct data.

7a. LAST RACE DISTANCE 

The next step provides the Horse Race Analyzer with some details 
about how each horse actually ran during its most recent races. 
When you see LAST RACE/DISTANCE, do the same numeric 
shorthand you used for the current race length— SI if less than a 
mile, H if a mile or more. The lower-case "f" in this example 
means "furlongs!' miles are shown as numbers and fractions only. 
If you ever find an "a" in front of the distance, it means "about!' 
Disregard the "a" and just base your "1" or "2" answer on the 
distance. Enter it with DISTANCE. LAST ^ RUNNING UNE

7b. LAST RACE RUNNING LINE 

The next questions take you to what is known as the "running line!' 
This string of numbers tells how the horse ran during the course of 
its last race. The horse's field position is shown at three "calls;' or 
stages of the race, as well as its finishing position. After each of 
these numbers a small number or symbol tells you how many 
lengths behind the leader (or ahead of the next horse, if leading) 
the horse was at the call— the "lengths back" number. WHEN 
YOU PUNCH IN THE LENGTHS-BACK NUMBERS, ROUND 
DOWN ANY FRACTIONS TO THE LOWER WHOLE NUMBER. 

If the lengths-back is "no" (by a nose), "nk" (by a neck) or "hd" (by 
a head), use H for your answer. If the horse is in first place, use E. 
Enter the LAST RACE/LENGTHS BACK/1ST CALL number with 
Il.e.b. istl . Then punch in the second and third small numbers in

this line when the display asks for LAST RACE/LENGTHS BACK/ 
2ND CALL and LAST RACE/LENGTHS BACK/3RD CALL. Enter 
them, in turn, with |LE.B.2ndl and EH13 . Remember, if the 
horse was in first place or less than a length behind the leader, 
use BE for LENGTHS BACK. 

The next question to answer is LAST RACE/FINISH POSITION. 
Find the Finishing Position number in this running line and key it 
in. Then enter it with If in. posnj . 

The last item, which completes the profile you are giving the 
computer of the horse's performance last time out, is LAST 
RACE/LENGTHS BACK/FINISH. Use the last small number 
in the "running line." If the horse finished first or less than a 
leng th behind the leader, use LoJ . Then enter this number

8. RACE BEFORE LAST DISTANCE & RUNNING LINE 

The computer needs this kind of running profile for more than one 
race, so it will ask you to go through this routine for the 2nd race 
back. Just drop down one line in the statistics and punch in the 
same kind of "running line" information for that previous ra ce. 
Enter these numbers with the same Entry Keys : jdistancei 

|LE.B.1sl |LE.B.2nd jLE.B.3rd IFIN. POSNJ [L.E.B. FIN J . 



9. 3rd RACE BACK, DISTANCE, LENGTHS BEHIND 

The computer needs just a little more information about the 
horse's race distance history and out-of-the-gate running traits. 
So to complete this part of the program, key in the distance of the 
horse's 3rd race back (again using the "CD or (2 code"). Enter it 
with idistancei . Then punch in the lengths-back figure at the 
1st CALL. Enter it with [l.e.b. isil . That is all you need enter for 
the 3rd race back.

10. SPEED RATINGS 

The last entries are taken from the horse's speed ratings. There 
are two ways to do this. THE FIGURES YOU USE DEPEND ON 
THE LENGTH OF THE RACE YOU ARE HANDICAPPING. 

ROUTE RACE 

If it's a mile or more— a ROUTE RACE, the computer will ask you 
for 2 BEST SPEED RATINGS/OF LAST 5 RACES. Look down the 
Speed rating column and select the two HIGHEST numbers in the 
most recent five races. Punch in one of them and press the left 
ISpd. rtg.i . Then do the other and press the right ISPD. rtg.i . 
The correct Speed Ratings for this horse, running at 1 1 /e miles, 
would be 86 and 92.

SPRINT RACE 

If it's less than a mile— a SPRINT RACE, the computer will ask you 
for 2 BEST SPEED RATINGS. 

Look for the Speed Ratings shown for the two MOST RECENT 
GOOD FtACES THE HORSE HAS RUN. These are not necessar- 



18 



SPRINT race (continued 

ily the highest Speed Ratings in the column. A "good race" is 
defined as one in which the horse finished 1st, 2nd or 3rd OR 
finished less than 3 lengths behind the leader. 

The left circled column is the one you've already used to get 
FINISH POSITION and LENGTHS BACK AT FINISH. Start at the 
top and read down this column until you find the most recent good 
race: a 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place or any finish when the horse was less 
then 3 lengths back. When you find a good race, look over to the 
right in that li ne and ent er the Speed Rating. 
Press the left [Spqrtgj. 

When you find the second MOST REC ENT good race, punch in its 
Speed Rating and enter it with the right ISPD rtg.i . 



This sprint horse's 
finished second, a 
was the third back 
So the "best race 



first good race was the last one, when he 
half-length back. His previous good race 
when he finished second, one length back. 
Speed Ratings are 92 and 91.

A SPECIAL WORD ON SPEED RATINGS 

DAILY RACING FORM Speed Ratings are accompanied by a "track 

variant." When entering numbers in the Horse Race Analyzer, just 

ignore this variant. 

If you find that the 2 most recent good races had the same Speed 

Ratings, use them both for Speed Rating entries. 

If there is only one "good race," use that Speed Rating twice. If there 

were no "good races," use 30 for both Speed Ratings. 

NOTE: The RACING FORM has recently added Speed Figures 

to the Past Performances. These differ from the traditional DAILY 

RACI NG FORM Speed Ratings. The tested Horse Race Analyzer 

formula is based on the FORM'S pure Speed Ratings, not the 

Speed Figures. Should the more experienced handicapper want 

to experiment with the new Speed Figures instead, we suggest 

utilizing them as described on pages 18 and 19. 



Moving on... 

When you've entered two Speed Ratings you've finished the 
programming for one horse. If there are more horses to analyze 
for the same race, press inexti . The computer will store its 
rating for the horse just completed, and is ready to accept 
the numbers for the next one. The display will read POST 
POSITION (remember, PURSE and TODAY'S DISTANCE 
need to be entered just once for each race). 



20 



GETTING THE HORSE RACE ANALYZER 
RATINGS 

Enter all the numbers for a race. When you've punched in the 
data for all the horses, you can get the Horse Race Analyzer 
ratings for the top 4 competitors by pressing [an alyze! four 
times. The first message will show you 5 numbers: the post 
position and rating for the top horse. The second message 
will give you the second-best horse, and so on. 

Each time you press IanalyzI, write down the numbers you see 
so you'll have a written record to refer to when you make your 
final choices. The fifth time you press ianalyzH the display goes 
blank, and when you press that key again the series of 4 ratings 
for that race will start to recycle. 



After you've recorded all the Post Positions and ratings, turn 
the Horse Race Analyzer off to clear all data in its memory 
before you start entering numbers for the next race. 
Ratings will generally range from 125-500. The higher the 
rating, the better. All ratings are relative to each other only 
in each particular race. 

Note: In rare instances, you might find ratings which, for example, read 04-050, 
or 10-014. These ratings indicate that the horse in the post position involved 
(4 or 10, in the above example) has not been rated for failing to meet certain 
handicapping criteria in the program. All ratings below 100 are equal, that is 
they are all equivalent to zero, or no rating. (This situation most arises in 
stakes races with abnormally high purses, in which case the race is unpre- 
dictable by the Horse Race Analyzer.) 



21 



LET'S TRY IT (PRACTICE 
EXAMPLES) 

The best way for you to get familiar 
with the Horse Race Analyzer is to 
start working with it, using actual 
data. Try to go through the whole 
program now by handicapping

MAKING YOUR FINAL CHOICE 

With some practice, you will soon become comfortable with all the 
keys and codes of the Horse Race Analyzer™. Follow the steps 
outlined on the previous pages and you can get a numerical rating 
for the top four horses in a given race. 

Now, how do you utilize these ratings? Obviously, you can take the 
top choice every time and forget the rest, but you might want to 
increase your chances of picking first, second or third place finish- 
ers. For more consistent success, you should look deeper into the 
world of handicapping. 

After you have analyzed a few races, you will notice that ratings for 
the top horses within a race may be widely separated or can be 
close. With experience you will begin to see differences in the 
characters of the races. When the ratings by the computer for the 
for the top four horses are clearly separated, they signify a field of 



differing ability. In such a situation, your selections seem clearly 
indicated. When the ratings are closer together, the horses may 
show similar promise. In these situations, you may want to utilize 
some other handicapping factors to help you make your selec- 
tions. 

In this section we explain some of these factors. Your own evalua- 
tion of these factors may help you choose a winner from a cluster 
group. 

Now that you are on your way to becoming a better handicapper, 
here are those special things to think about. Whether the ratings 
are clearly separated or particularly if they are not, considering 
these factors can be an interesting extension to your handicap- 
ping and can help you make your final decision.

Recent Winners & Hard Races 

It usually takes a great deal of effort for a horse to win a race or 
closely challenge the winner in a race. It is even harder for average 
horses to continue to do well after two or three close hard races. 
Only the top echelon horses — those that compete in Stakes Races 
and Allowances — are capable of winning consistently. Check the 
past performances. If the highest rated horse in your race looks 
like it might have participated in too many recent good hard tries or 
wins, you might want to consider the second, third or fourth rated 
entry.

SPECTABULEAUX ran two very good races in his last two 
outings. He had tried to come from behind the two races prior, 
barely missing. He received a high rating because of these 
efforts and other factors. 

Although SPECTABULEAUX is a good horse, he's probably a 
tired horse, which he proved by running out of the money. 

Maiden Winners 

Horses that have just won a maiden (first) race might have higher 
than normal ratings which belie their true value. This is because a 
horse which has just won its maiden race has beaten only other 
horses of unestablished quality. While maidens can beat more 
experienced winners on occasion, you might want to consider the 
second or third rated selection, if either of these is a more experi- 
enced 3 year old horse.

In the above example, CRAFTY IKE was a maiden winner in 
his last race — after six unsuccessful tries. Now he is entered 
in an Allowance Race, a move up in class. The Horse Race 
Analyzer gives him a high rating as a result of his recent victory. 
However, CRAFTY IKE ran out of the money in his Allowance. 



State-Bred Races 

Most racetracks offer one or two races a day restricted to horses 
bred in that particular state, and with the exception of Kentucky, 
California, and Florida (the top states in the breeding industry), 
state-bred competition is generally inferior to races in which horses 
born anywhere (open company) are eligible. State-bred races 
are indicated in the Past Performances with the symbol [sj . 

As with the maiden example, above, horses running primarily 
in state-bred races may get higher than normal ratings, which 
would belie their true value in open company. Therefore, when 
you find these types running in open company, they should 
be downgraded in your handicapping. When they return to 
a state-bred race, running against other state-bred horses, 
the ratings apply as calculated.

Track Bias 

Track Bias is the tendency of a track to consistently favor the 
running style of certain groups of horses. Perhaps the front- 
runners seem to do better than is warranted, or maybe the 
come-from-behind entries win more often. This varies from 
track to track, and even seasonly or weekly at the same track. 
The important thing is to look for a pattern, if any. 

If among the top horses, you find one that is running with the 
bias, that horse may have an extra edge. Or conversely, if your 



top-rated horse is running aga inst the bias, you might want 
to consider one of the other top rated horses. You need to 
carefully check the results charts from your particular track, 
to determine if a bias exists. 

Post Position (Routes) 

Most Route Races are run around two turns, thus posing a disad- 
vantage to horses breaking out from the rail in this racing situation. 
The Horse Race Analyzer™ has compensated for this situation in 
its computing process. At certain tracks, however, some Route 
Races are contested around only one turn* If your selections are 
being made in these situations, you should upgrade the ratings for 
horses breaking well out from the rail when evaluating the top 
rated horses. 

For example, Aqueduct, Hollywood Park, Churchill Downs at one mile; 
Belmont Park all Races up to one and one quarter miles. Check your 
local track to determine these one-turn routes. 



CONCLUSION 

In addition to the general instructions for using your new Horse 
Race Analyzer, we have given you some handicapping guidelines 
that have worked for many people. Consider them when you bring 
your handicapping efforts to the point of making your final deci- 
sions. And think of your Horse Race Analyzer as your private sec- 
retary. As you scan the pages of numbers in the Daily Racing 
Form, feed the important figures into your Horse Race Analyzer 
one by one. It will store and compute for you. It will save you time 
to build a rational framework on which you can make some 
thoughtful choices.
